Grand National Each-Way Tips:

The 2023 Grand National takes place on Saturday, with 40 runners going to post in this famous steeplechase. 

With so many horses involved, many customers look to bet each-way where they can secure a profitable return if their horse hits the frame. 

Betting sites are always competitive with their place terms and we’ve picked out three horses against the field for the big one at Aintree.

Ultimately, you should look for the biggest odds when it comes to the below runners and also look to secure the biggest number of places. 

Betting each-way means that you can profit from backing more than one selection and we’re happy to throw a dart at this trio of horses in a bid to secure some kind of return on the Grand National.

Corach Rambler 

The nine-year-old might be among the National favourites but there is still merit in backing this runner each-way. 

Corach Rambler goes off a favourable weight of 10-5 and the nine-year-old demonstrated plenty of class when winning the Ultima Handicap Chase at the Cheltenham Festival.

Lucinda Russell will hope that race hasn’t taken too much out of her stable star, although all the trends suggest a big run from a horse that has won successive Ultima Handicap Chases and it’s fair to say that this charge has beaten the handicapper. 

The key thing is that Corach Rambler escapes a penalty for the recent Festival win and that might mean he has more in the tank in the final stages of the race compared to some of the other adversaries that are still standing at that stage in proceedings.

Ain’t That A Shame

We don’t mean to jump on the Rachael Blackmore bandwagon, but this nine-year-old is a talented animal who carries the same weight as Corach Rambler, giving him plenty of weight advantage over several other horses in the race.

Henry de Bromhead will be confident that his charge can last the trip and the horse was successful on his previous outing when winning the Holden Fleet Management Beginners Chase at Gowran Park, with the 8/13 favourite triumphing by six lengths on that occasion.

Previously to this, there was a fourth-placed finish in the Paddy Power Chase at Leopardstown during the festive season and there could be more to come from a horse who has terrific jumping ability which is sure to stand him well here.

The Big Dog

We’re prepared to forgive The Big Dog for falling on his previous race. The 10-year-old was actually heading Galopin Des Champs in the Paddy Power Irish Gold Cup at Leopardstown before tumbling close to home and he was certainly outrunning his odds of 33/1 that day.

Before turning out at the Dublin Racing Festival, there had been some bright performances and that includes a third-placed finish in the Welsh Grand National at Chepstow.

How To Bet On The Grand National

He had hit the front three out before blundering at the next obstacle which ultimately cost him the chance of landing a victory.

However, we look back fondly to those victories for The Big Dog at Limerick and Navan. The Peter Fahey-trained charge obliged in the JT McNamara Ladbrokes Munster National Handicap Chase over three miles on soft ground before delivering over the same distance in the Bar One Racing Troytown Handicap Chase.
